HOT DAY FOR NETTY!

S&A

Apparently the Jenkins girls (Alanah & Sophie), like our seniors, can’t get enough netball in the off season.  They joined together with some friends to participate in the Shailer Park Carnival on Sunday. Shailer Park were raising funds to rebuild their Clubhouse following a recent fire.

Their team was called “The Diamantes” – aka pretend Diamonds.  They were undefeated until the last game but were pipped at the post and came away Runners Up.  Susan Bamford umpired for them so there were more Rangers members flying our flag – reports say that the Rangers esky, umbrella and picnic rugs came in very handy!

Great effort for a good cause on a scorcher of a day!

 

NetFest 2014

IMG_5168What do the girls from our A Grade and A Reserve do when Saturday netball is over for the year?  They play netball of course!  Our girls joined almost 1,800 netballers to celebrate netball, fun and friendship on the Gold Coast this weekend!  Wow did it look like they had a ball!

Net Fest 2They had plenty of supporters there to cheer them on also – might become a parents weekend away as well.  Also managed to catch up with old Rangers girls Erin, Ali and Laura.  It wasn’t without incident though –  Courtney received an ankle injury but still soldiered on to enjoy the fun – wishing you a speedy recovery Courtney.Gabby

Gabby wasn’t old enough to play in the 18+ event but cheered the girls on on Saturday – she even managed to get some tips from previous Australian Captains Liz Ellis and Sharelle McMahon on the beach.

Playing netty with your mates – doesn’t get any better than that!  With so much fun had by all – looks like they will be lining up again next year.

Don’t forget to like us on Rangers Facebook  More photos of the weekend will be there soon.

GRAND FINAL DONE – NOW LET’S CELEBRATE

What an exciting day for Grand Final Day and last day for all games.  Rangers is very proud of all of girls who after 15 fixtures and 2 finals made their way to the grand finals.  As usual our girls played in the spirit of the game and play hard til the last whistle.  Win or loose it was nice to see the smiles on all our girls faces.

 

IMG_0443Rangers 14 – 12 Yrs Div 4 with a similar team that came one short of the grand final went one stop better this year. They were up against a very strong St Joseph’s team and at the half time break were even.  In what was a tightly fought contest they came were pipped at the post.  Great effort girls – one step further next year if your Manager and Coach can stand the strain.

IMG_4916Ranger 9 – 13 Yrs Div 1 had a few hiccups to start with one player unable to attend and then their shooter becoming injured in the warm up.  Thank you to Grace Bobbermien from Rangers 12 -who helped fill the gap.  The girls were unable to get over the top of a Joeys team that hasn’t lost a game.  The girls can feel proud that they gave everything and looked spent a the end of the game.  Great effort girls!

Rangers 8 14/15 Yrs Div 6 – have had a fantastic season with the coach Sharon Serow saying she has had one of the best season coaching.  These girls also had a few injuries and came against a Stuartholme team that had half the school on the side line.  The atmosphere was electric and our girls struggled to gain any momentum and were unable to get on top.  Great effort girls to finish Minor Premiers and make the grand final.

Rangers  7 14/15 Yrs Div 5 – With Sam and Sarah and a very huge crowd supporting them the girls looked ready to shine.  However the St Joseph’s team were just better one the day.  How impressive, this team has only come together this year and have made the grand final.  Wow what can they do next year!
